Best Climbing Experience
Observatory ridge - cioch slab - away from mountains, enjoyed pulpit arete at loudon hill very much.

the runnell - temperance union blues - enjoyed north gully on creag coire na ciste, esp the views from the upper part.

one trip to the alps and ejoyed the mittaghorn via ferrata, weismeiss south ridge and jegihorn via ferrata enormously.

ardnamurchan is a favourite now; with the sun its just stunning climbing in a wonderful place. rfeally enjoyed faradh dubh.

very impressed with ratho

About My Photography
my photos are opportunistic - carried an olympus mju zoom always, till it corpsed, then got an olympus camedia which is grand - i've got loads of shots from years in the hills and the gallery is as much for memories as anything

Favourite Climbs
i've liked all the routes i've done - tower and castle and observatory ridges were good esp. tower - curved ridge and north buttress were good - aonach eagach was good - temperance union blues was the main step up in winter terms and altho bare was v.good fun - ring crags in ardnamurchan are brilliant - just did echo edge on meall buidhe
which was the hardest climbing i've done (seconded the main buttress section)
